Al Jazeera Media Institute published the studies conducted by the first intake of its fellowship program launched last January.

During the 3-month program, the fellow Arab journalists conducted their researches that revolved around journalistic matters and studied Al Jazeera activity on that regard.

Lahassan Saquor, from Morocco, his research is titled: “News Story on Video: Visual Attraction and the Quality of the Content: The Case of AJ+”. The Syrian Abdullah Maksoor’s research is titled “Al Jazeera and the Journalists Safety: The Case of Syria”. Tarek Binhada from Morroco presented his research “Al Jazeera Coverage of ISIS News: Editorial Standards and News Verification”; and Enas Bu Saidi, from Tunisia, researched the “Al Jazeera Coverage of Yemeni Question: Mechanism of Verifying the Social Media Platforms’ News”. 

AJMI launched the fellowship program in January of this year to promote the academic research, and provide the opportunity to journalists and researchers to have professional experiences and studies available.

 

The fellowship is of two types: Al Jazeera Fellowship, and Visiting Journalist Fellowship. The program revolves around three main aspects: digital journalism, challenges encountered by media organizations, and journalism and human rights.
